Amazon to invest in UK’s least popular delivery service

With subscriptions to their ‘Prime’ service on the rise, Amazon is always looking for ways to cut down the cost of  home deliveries. One such option they’re considering is to  invest in the companies that actually deliver its parcels, with UK firm Yodel the object of Amazon’s interest.

The Guardian reports that the two companies have agreed a deal which could see Amazon acquire 4.2 percent of the UK’s least loved parcel service for a cool £8.7 million. While Yodel is the second biggest service of its kind behind Royal Mail, customers haven’t been so supportive of them, putting the company at the bottom of the delivery polls for the second year running.
